Liberation Psychology: Ethical Consideration For Practice With Marginalized Communities

Please join us on Wednesday, 6/16 at 9 AM PST for a free 1-hour continuation education workshop with our faculty Dr. Thema Bryant as she speaks on Libration Psychology - Ethical Considerations for Practice with Marginalized Communities in celebration of Juneteenth and Pride Month.

This free 1-hour program will expand the professional's understanding of the ethic of care based on liberation psychology theory, method, and practice overall and with special populations. This course will provide an introduction to the use of liberation psychology as an aligned practice with the American Psychological Association’s call for ethical multicultural, justice-informed practice. This workshop will provide the theoretical grounding of Liberation psychology, which is particularly relevant to the times of hate crimes and the trauma of oppression. Attention will be given to the ways in which awareness of discrimination, cultural identities, and personal as well as cultural strengths should inform assessment, case conceptualization, and treatment.

Dr. Bryant is a seasoned trauma therapist. She teaches on Trauma in Diverse Populations and Clinical Skills and focuses on the cultural context that includes racial trauma amongst child abuse, sexual abuse, and partner abuse. Dr. Thema Bryant is an author of Thriving in the Wake of Trauma: A Multicultural Guide, is published in multiple journals, is the editor of APA’s premiere trauma journal, Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy, is an award winner on her research addressing trauma and oppression, and is the director of the Culture and Trauma Research Lab.
